As with event planning, it’s a good idea to have a birthday party planning checklist to ensure that you are leaving no stone unturned. Once you have setup your template, you then enter the information for the people that you’ll be inviting.
Evites for Birthdays-the Automation
Once the initial planning stages are complete, the inviting stage of the birthday can then be automated. You’ve heard the expression that the devil is in the details. By automating your invitation process, your attendees will receive the invitation, and follow-ups according to the schedule you set. For example, if somebody has replied saying they will attend then you certainly do not want to be sending them a reminder e-mail. The same can be said about somebody that cannot attend. The last thing you want is for them to receive additional follow-ups if they’ve already told you they cannot come. Well the automation stage will help in this area. Your reminder will only be sent to those who did not register from the initial e-mail. And then a confirmation e-mail will only need to be sent to those that have indicated they are attending. In other words no duplication any get to keep your friends.
Evites for birthdays can help organize your attendees and save you valuable planning time. By taking the time, upfront, you’ll be able to set your birthday event in motion and have reminders and confirmations automated. This will leave you more time to work on the many other components when planning a party. Who knows, you may actually even have extra time for fun.
